Merry Christmas Maja Design friends. Jennifer Snyder here with you to share some Christmas home decor and cheer using Maja Design’s new Christmas collection, Traditional Christmas.
Take a look at this gorgeous seasonal delight with rich reds and Christmas prints. Here are the individual papers used from the collection: “By the Fire” A and B sides, “Family Gatherings”.
The wooden sled decor piece is from Creative Embellishments and comes ready to finish. I covered it with the three Maja Design 12×12 sheets because I love the combination of patterns in this collection.
I also embellished with chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments and flowers from my stash.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a joyful healthy 2021. Thanks for sharing a part of your day with us.
Hello Maja Design friends. Thankyou for returning here today. My project I am sharing with you uses the gorgeous gorgeous collection of Miles Apart.
This is “My love for you”….
It was when I was going through the absolutely stunning paper collection of Maja Design’s new release “Miles Apart” that I came across a quote from the barcode strip of “Keep in touch”, that I knew this was my starting point.
The quote reads:
“If you listen to the wind very carefully, you’ll be able to hear me whisper my love for you”.
Just beautiful don’t you think? So I found my photo to work with this and went to work. I made lots of layers using torn papers from the Maja collection in the tones of the blues and apricot as in the moodboard below. I couldn’t believe really how close these colours were.
They are as listed below.
Keep in touch “A”
“Keep in touch “B”
“Keeping Busy” “A”
“Keeping Busy” “B”
I did a little embossing in white around the outside of the background using a stitching stamp from 49andMarket. I also added in some texture using Rangers White Crackle paste and some random stamping in Archival Ink in Watering Can. The barstrip with the quote was cut up and distressed.
I used a number of gorgeous pieces of Dusty Chipboards some you will probably have to look very hard to see but they are there. For me it is all about the layers. So starting off once all my paper layers were down I added in the new release chipboard the “Flowering Vine”. I have used the smaller vine from this pack. It was dressed in white crackle paste along with Inka Golds in the colours of mint and apricot.
I have used a number of flower packs. Some from 49andMarket and some from Prima Marketing to create my flower clusters.
Lots of lace and leaves with pretty flower pearls and muslin were also added in amongst these layers.
Well that is all from me today. I do hope you have enjoyed this blogpost. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very blessed and safe Christmas and New Year.
Can’t wait to see you all back here again next year.
Thanks for calling by.
